Stacy, first of all....Congratulations! I am so glad to hear all went well, even with the last minute changes. And thank you for posting the photos. Even without the gazebo, it looks like Zavas will still be a great spot for a reception.

Does anyone need 12 table number holders or 21 gel pens (colors of blue, pink, purple, and green)? We also have 16 single LED lights. We will be here until Nov 23 or we can leave them with the WCs.

Has anyone sent any boxes prior to your arrival?   I am trying to think of ways to keep the décor budget in check... I just got a quote for Flowers that almost knocked me off my chair!

 

What are your thoughts in terms of bringing décor down with you?  Or using an alternative florist?

 

Thanks!  :)

I was strongly advised to not ship anything to the resort ahead of time. It's likely to get held up by Mexican Customs. I am planning to ask several friends to take a bag with them on the plane since a few of us are traveling together and they don't have a lot of luggage. I've seen several posts about using Real Touch flowers to save money but I like the te, natural flowers and plan to pay for them.

I've read a few posts about brides taking some extra old luggage they don't want anymore down and leaving it there.  Another bride on a thread said she just brought big bins.  I guess it depends on how much décor you're bringing.  We'll be bringing ours but it'll only cost $20 per extra checked bag so we should be in good shape.  We're flying with most of our wedding guests so we'll be handing out most of our OOTs to guests at the airport to put into their own luggage before they check their bags.

 

We'll be bringing our real touch flowers.  I like the idea of keeping my bouquet and guests being able to keep the pomanders.  We'll sell any of the leftover floral centerpieces as long as they're in good condition when we come back.

I ended up bringing 2 big boxes along with an old luggage, this was aside from our 2 luggages of clothes for the two weeks we were going to be down there for. When we came bk I sent back the old luggage with my parents with decor and threw away the other 2 boxes b/c I didn't need them anymore.

Hi June7BeachBride, Our date is June 6, 2014, the day before your's. We have about 45-50 people in Plaza Zavas for the reception. I've booked the DJ without the MC just because I don't want to be bothered trying to figure out a playlist. If you have friends who can bring music on an iPod and work it during the reception, you may want to save some money and just rent the speakers. But, I've read where other brides are very adamant about getting just the right DJ to make the party. Just depends on how you want to party.

Thanks in advance! 

 

We booked the DJ but not the MC as well.  Since the rental comes with a MIC, we figured we could just get a friend to do a few key intros or even do it ourselves. We have 40 guests confirmed and paid for.

 

Is anyone out there doing a beach reception?  Is the only spot on the beach for a dinner reception the yoga spot?

We hired the DJ and the MC... It's just easier, keeps the party going plus I wanted everyone to enjoy themselves and not have to worry about doing intros and various announcements although I guess it's not really a huge deal! We have 40 people confirmed as well!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
